Female ejaculation is the expulsion of fluid by the paraurethral ducts through and around the human female urethra during or before an orgasm. It is also known colloquially as squirting or gushing.
A few women experience this and either do not know what it is or what the cause is. Some guys are also interested in understanding the phenomenon and how they can cause their partner to have one.

Here are six simple facts about the female ejaculation.

1. What causes it?

Many believe that squirting happens when your G-spot is stimulated. When sexually aroused, the G-spot fills with blood and appears to be swollen. Some women can have an orgasm if the G-spot is properly stimulated, and for some, this can trigger female ejaculation.

2. Is it pee?

No, it is NOT. Women have an area equivalent to the prostate gland. This area allows women to release fluids during orgasm. The fluid is thought to be secreted by the skene glands, which sit on either side of the urethra, not by the bladder. Though it's perfectly normal for a teensy bit of diluted pee to sneak out, too.

3. What does it feel like?

It can feel like you want to pee. When your partner hits that sweet spot and you're about to ejaculate, you'll typically feel the same sense of urgency that strikes when your bladder's full. You might even find yourself pausing mid-sex to run to the toilet - when in fact, you were about to squirt.

4. Can you learn it?

For some women, ejaculating can be a learned experience - alone, or with a partner. First off, hit the bathroom so your bladder does not distract you. You want to hit your G-spot, which is the area about two knuckles in, on the front wall of the vagina. Instead of a gentle massage like you'd give your clitoris, stimulating the G-spot typically involves hard and vigorous thrusting. One thing women can do to increase their odds of success is to relax, and when they feel that sensation as if they have to pee, to not stop it but let it go - it's not pee, it's squirt.

5. What if I cannot squirt?

Unfortunately, some women might not be able to do it, no matter how many times they try. But that doesn't mean your vagina is defective. Not all women sexually respond to G-spot stimulation. So don't worry if you've tried and failed to find that sweet spot.

6. And if I do?

On the flip side, some women might squirt all the time. Don't ever be embarrassed! For most men, it's a big boost to their confidence as a love. It makes them feel like they're extra special in the sack. Plus, they do it all the time. If it's the mess you can't stand, simply bring out a towel when you know you're about to get busy - and enjoy!
